Hey Everyone,  Running the NYC Marathon and raising money for an organization that is very important to me (The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation)  See more
Frank Schwall

THE STORY:

I am running the 2016 NYC Marathon with the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation in honor of all those battling colon cancer.  As a survivor of stage 3C colon cancer (diagnosed 12/12) I understand the importance of a positive attitude, faith and a fighting spirit. So never give up! I also hope to raise awarness about the importance of yearly checkups and colonoscopies. Get them done. It can save your life. It did mine.

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation has been working in New York City since 2003, raising awareness of colorectal cancer, funding screening programs for the uninsured, and providing much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.   

More than an estimated 51,000 Americans died from colon cancer this past year.  When you joinTeam Colon Cancer Challenge you join the fight against colorectal cancer and help us spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with early screening.  

Each member of Team Colon Cancer Challenge has pledged to Make Their Miles Count by raising funds to support the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation’s mission of a World Without Colorectal Cancer.

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation launched Team Colon Cancer Challenge in 2010 to:

  • Encourage colorectal cancer survivors to incorporate exercise into their everyday lives as a way to significantly reduce the rate of recurrence,
  • Provide a grassroots opportunity for colorectal cancer survivors and their family members to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer in their community,
  • Offer those who have lost a loved one to colorectal cancer a positive and effective channel for their rallying cry against colorectal cancer.

Team Colon Cancer Challenge has raised more than $445,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of early screening, prevention, and research.  

For more information on joining Team Colon Cancer Challenge please visit coloncancerchallenge.org or contact us at info@coloncancerchallenge.org

**Starting a CrowdRise fundraiser does not guarantee you a slot in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. If you need a guaranteed entry, you must contact the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation before setting up a fundraising page. You can also start a charity page on CrowdRise if you are not an official charity runner, but you will not receive guaranteed entry into the TCS New York City Marathon.
